End of Watch (EOW) Clinton Missouri Officer Christopher Ryan Morton

Second KIA in Clinton MO (pop 9K) within 7 months to the date.

Initial reports are that Officer Morton and 2 other Officers responded to a report of a domestic violence call but were dispatched to the wrong address. After making contact with a female suspect, they took fire from a semi-automatic rifle from a male suspect in the rear of the house. Morton was struck in both arms, both legs, chest, and head and eventually succumbed to his wounds at a local hospital.

Two other Officers on scene were wounded and taken to KC Area hospitals where they are expected to survive.

Suspect died at the scene. It us unknown if he was taken out by officers on scene or did himself in.

Officer Morton served with the Missouri National Guard and went downrange to A-Stan x2.

Morton previously served as a VA Hospital Police Officer and as a Reserve Officer for Clinton, MO, but was inspired to work for Clinton full-time after Officer Gary Michael was KIA'd on a traffic stop seven months ago.

RIP Brother.....

RIP Brother
All men dream, but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds wake in the day to find that it was vanity, but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act their dreams with open eyes, to make it possible. This I did.

RIP Officer.

Rest easy buddy. My prayers are with you and your family, your fellow teammates and officers. Laying our fellow guys and gals to rest is the hardest thing an officer will ever have to do. Thank you for your service.

Holy crap. He was sent to the wrong house. The actual call was 20 miles away in Windsor. 911 centers got their lines crossed somehow.

Grace and peace to the department, his friends, and family.
